I called my local European specialist several times regarding an imaginary VW Corrado or BMW E36 that needed a new headlamp assembly. **** me that stuff is expensive. I ended up with a high-mileage 1992 MR2 that served me well for several years. I could order new old stock OE Toyota parts for pennies-on-the-dollar from Olathe Toyota Parts. Same deal with a Fiat I later owned. Need a brand-new OE radiator? That'll be $100 from International Auto Parts.
BRZ headlight ain't cheaper either. They are close to $1,000 for a complete new unit and I didn't see any particular aftermarket stuff that looked very good quality. First time I was covered by insurance. Second time I used epoxy and super glue and built up the layers until the cracks were sealed. Which took about a week
I guess I can't afford a BRZ, I miss the cheap halogen reflector cost but I like the HID output

Yup. The round headlamps I used to put in my 1st-gen Celica coupes were about $10/ea. And I don't recall if they were new or re-manufactured but I remember buying front brake rotors for my '74 for $12/ea. Granted those were practically farm trucks by comparison and already thirty years old by the time I owned them. These new cars will breeze past 100mph for passing in a matter of seconds without even breaking a sweat.

Just some words of advice @korhun in dealing with @Tcoat ;


1. Anything he says after 10pm his time can be totally unpredictable.
2. He is extremely patriotic as he should be.
3. He loves making model aircraft/war stuff.
4. @Ultramaroon is his long lost brother.
5. @finch1750 is his illegitimate love child from a holiday in Cali in the 80's.
6. @Sapphireho is his leather clad gay lover of late.
7. @p1l0t is his personal pilot flying him worldwide for appearances.
8. @soundman98 is his personal DJ for all 70's to 90's rock n roll.
9. @humfrz is his grandfather.
10. Don't take anything too seriously on here.
11. He loves country specific puns, except when directed at Canada.
12. He loves snowflakes and polls.
13. He loves bacon.
